on the Badge - - Title of the novel written by black NYPD
Detective Ron Harris (Ron Glass) on the sitcom BARNEY
Working at the 12th Precinct in Greenwich
Village, Detective Harris juggled both professions of police
officer and novelist.
Constantly making notes while on duty, he
finally produced a novel entitled "Blood on the Badge", a.k.a. "B.O.B."
(initially titled "Precinct Diary") which told a lurid tale
about the Men in Blue. The book was published by Wainwright
Publishers. Detective Harris continued struggling to write a
second novel often suffering from writer's block.
On the last episode of the series Harris left
the police force to continue his writing career.
